Zorin OS 6 Lite - The Lite Fantastic

Filed under
Linux

I am a real fan of Zorin. Very few distributions work perfectly straight out of the box. There is always one hurdle or another that needs to be jumped in order to get the system into a state of readiness.

Zorin OS 6 Lite is designed to work on computers that have lower resources available than is required to run Zorin OS 6. Zorin OS 6 adds a bit of razzmatazz with the use of Compiz and the applications included have a heavier footprint than Zorin OS 6 Lite.

Zorin OS 6 Lite is based on Lubuntu 11.10 and uses LXDE. As you can see from the screenshot above the look and feel will be quite familiar for Windows users. There is a single task bar at the bottom with a start button and quick launch icons and in the bottom right system tray icons.
